Governor Mark Dayton and other top Democrats are urging House Republicans to release details of their bonding bill for state construction projects, with less than three weeks until the legislature must adjourn. House Speaker Kurt Daudt responds, before moving ahead with a bonding bill, they’d like at least broad agreement on how the legislature will deal with transportation and tax relief. Daudt says House and Senate leadership needs to meet and set those joint targets, and they need to have some in-depth conversations before doing it. House Democratic Minority Leader Paul Thissen says it should be possible to move ahead on bonding without agreeing on transportation or tax cuts — but Republicans have linked the three issues to get negotiating leverage in the closing days of the session.
